Tragedy continues to hit the bodybuilding world.
A black cloud continues to hover over the bodybuilding world, with the shocking news about the death of Senthil Kumaran Selvarajan and Lawrence ‘The Beast’ Marshall.
Just a few days earlier, the news about the death of Fahad Zaid Hazzazi shocked the bodybuilding world.
Nobody can run away from death, it’s a part of life, but nobody was expecting the news of another two bodybuilding stars passing away just a few days later.
Lawrence ‘The Beast’ Marshall
Lawrence ‘The Beast’ Marshall passed away at the age of 58 on 8 May, 2021. It was first thought that Lawrence’s cause of death was due to Covid-19, but his family members immediately debunked these rumors.
In his later years, it was alleged that Lawrence had kidney problems.
Born in 1963, Marshall was the second bodybuilder from Trinidad and Tobago to turn professional. He was one of the prominent names in the sport in the 1990s and early 2000s. Victory after victory at local shows qualified him for Central American and Caribbean (CAC) events where he represented this country with distinction.
He also competed at a number of prestigious professional bodybuilding events. Marshall remained active on the local circuit nurturing the next generation and keeping the sport alive.
Marshall was also an International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness professional trainer. He plied his trade at the “The Bar by the Beast” at Grand Bazaar, Valsayn and D’Dial Fitness Club, which has two locations – Long Circular Mall, St James and Arima.
Senthil Kumaran Selvarajan
Senthil Kumaran Selvarajan was just starting to climb the ladder of success when he also suddenly passed away this week.
Chris Aceto was one of the first to announce the news about the unexpected passing of Senthil.
The official cause of death has not been confirmed. Evolutionofbodybuilding.net was contacted by a very close friend of Senthil, who alleged that he chocked on his own vomit while sleeping.
Senthil was very successful on the local and international bodybuilding circuit, winning numerous events.
Aceto had a very close relationship with Senthil, it was evident in the post that he published on his Instagram page.
“It’s with incredible sadness that I am sharing the very painful news of the sudden passing of Indian super star in the making Senthil Kumaran Selvarajan. Senthil was a remarkable bodybuilder. I used to fill his ears with “we are going to the Olympia 212 or Classic for sure.” I meant it. He believed it. More important Senthil was a Kind and loving husband father and brother. His wife is to deliver their second child within the month. Senthil is a great student and friend. I am sure all of the Indian bodybuilding community is in shock, will miss him dearly, as will his close friends and family. I miss you already. I am saddened yet feel even sadder for your family. I am so honored to have known you. With genuine Love and respect to you and your family.” – Chris Aceto
Aceto believed that in the near future, Senthil would one day step on the Olympia stage.
We at Evolutionofbodybuilding.net send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Senthil and Lawrence during this difficult moment.
